I am glad my fellow citizens in the valley show support for us workers at Vallourec Star whom do not want nor need a union interfering with the direction of this company, Vallourec has injected massive amounts of money into the valley, we support so many small businesses right here at home. Vallourec has shown they are seriously committed to our community by providing great jobs with competive wages and continuing investments. As long as Vallourec becomes stronger and rises so does our friends and neighbors in the valley. Let's not let a union that represents the 900 + out of work G.E. Americans in Erie pa. Ruin our investment in our future.

There's so much this company offers to us employee's that I can't even remember it all, but the piece of mind I have knowing that Vallourec provides a generous six figure life insurance policy at. No cost to me to help my family if God forbid I would pass away doing my job is invaluable.

I am a current Vallourec employee, here's why I am grateful and will vote NO on this union drive. I enjoy a generous 401k match,an onsite doctor for me and my family at no cost to me, stock purchase options along with free company provided stock,a monthly matrix bonus,a yearly profit check that's usually five figures,a Cadillac health insurance plan,a learning management system that gives me training to advance my career,a generous college tuition reimbursement. ,a two week paid vacation along with 40 personal time off. All in the first year of employment along with my generous wage rate approaching $ 100,000 a year, I have no need for a union to ruin the great job a world class company like Vallourec has provided for their employee's. This is a gem in the valley and I pray my brother and sisters here at Star shoot this vote down.......Chris Gallagher. A proud Vallourec employee

Being one of the not dumb employees of Vallourec star I wish to set the record straight here for the majority of the star workers. WE do not need nor want a union interfering with the great relationship that we currentjy have here. This union was enticed by a few disenfranchised older mill hands and seen major dollars to fatten the international UE's coffers at our expense, they have divided our workforce and made promises that they could never keep, brought in foreigner's to confuse the misinformed and uneducated. We the majority at Vallourec are in a fierce battle to maintain our great standard of living and allow a world class organization like Vallourec to continue bringing wealth and opportunity to the valley that needs this gem to help make the area great again.. please don't paint us all idiot's. CHRISTOPHER GALLAGHER. Grateful Vallourec Employee
